Designing a WWII fantasy water jet

#31
Guys, I think about ressurecting this plane, but this time with my new go-to Jet powerpack, swappeble twin 40mm EDF units on top of the wings! The main issue was the lack of the thrust tube, and by having the engines outside the fuselage, thats no longer a problem. Im working on 3D printed EDF powerpods, and I have lots of awesome mini jets in my head, which I hope I can build over the year!

Great project! I've always liked your builds a lot to begin with,but I'm super stoked at the direction you are experimenting in lately, mini and micro EDF jets are something I've really wanted to get into for a while and have been planning to head in that direction myself soon. I'm playing around with a couple more prop builds to try different stuff and extend my skills, but my next project will be a micro EDF. It will be cool to see what you come up with, and how you make it work. I have no EDF experience yet although I've done research on setting up thrust tubes and stuff.

We're getting there:
I finally got to print a 40mm EDF powerpod! The cool thing is that you can use it both inside the airplane and in a nacell on the wings. And you mount your thrust tube to the pod so you dont have to worry about that when taking out the EDF.

I hope that I can make first tests this weekend. Each EDF should have 600 gramms of thrust, so I hope that solves the power issue.

Awesome can you share the files?
Thank you!
